Drumtroddan Cup and Ring Marked Rocks
Drumtroddan Cup and Ring Marked Rocks
There are two groups of prehistoric monuments at Drumtroddan, several fields apart. One group comprises three clusters of stones with cup and ring carvings. These rocks probably date to the Bronze Age.
There are at least 84 cup and ring marks, and there may well be more. The variety of the carvings is striking; the number of rings varies from one to six. Some of the ring marks form complete circles, while others are incomplete. Several show a radial groove from the centre of the circle. There are over 65 cup marks, some with rings and some without.

A short distance away over the fields (but further in reality as you have to drive around) are a set of very well preserved standing stones.

By far the best time to visit is when the sun is low in the sky, as the low angle of light will help outline the cup and ring marks, some of which are really impressive.
